1 Whole hot peppers; dried, to

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Remove the dark intestinal veins from the shrimp. As you do, make each cut deep enough to butterfly the shrimp, so each can be opened flat like a book. Fill a bowl with ice water, add the sea salt and the butterflied shrimp, and let stand for 15 minutes to bring out some of the briny flavor of the shellfish. (Removing their shells robs the shrimp of some of their natural flavor.) Drain and dry thoroughly with a cotton kitchen towel. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic and hot pepper and sautee gently until the garlic softens but is not browned, about two minutes. Add the shrimp, placing them opened flat on the bottom of the pan so they do not curl too much. Sautee, turning once, until they are opaque, about two minutes on each side. Add the wine, stir and cook for an additional 30 seconds to allow alcohol to evaporate. Remove and discard the whole peppers, if using. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately. Variation with tomato: Add 1 small ripe tomato, peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped, or two canned plum tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped, to the sauteed shrimp in the skillet. Stir to mix, then add the wine and proceed with the recipe.
